Miss Freddye to play at Science Center

 


Local artist Miss Freddye will bring her blues stylings to Carnegie Science Center on Aug. 30 for the final BLUE! performance. The performance will begin at 1 p.m. in the BLUE! exhibit gallery.

Free with general admission to the Science Center, BLUE! performances are sponsored by Dollar Bank and were held every Saturday during July and August.

Miss Freddye started singing gospel in church at age 15 and joined “BMW” (Blues Music Works) in 1995. She formed her own band, Blue Faze, in 2002 and has opened for artists such as Kelly Richie, Eden Brent, and Bettye LaVette. Some of her influences include Etta James, Billie Holiday, and Ella Fitzgerald.

The singer -- who fuses blues, folk, gospel, and classic rock – has performed at blues festivals across the region. She’s also competed in several blues competitions, winning accolades for her singing.

BLUE! runs through January 1, 2015, and is included with general admission. The immersive, hands-on exhibit features molded foam blocks of all shapes and sizes, from small enough to use on a tabletop to huge enough to climb on – and all blue.
